Former youth pastor sentenced in sex-toy case

YUMA, AZ (AP) -

A Yuma church's former youth pastor has escaped a possible prison term and instead been sentenced to probation for purchasing two sex toys for a young girl.

The sentence imposed Wednesday by a Yuma County Superior Court requires 44-year-old Robert Eric Warren to serve 36 months of supervised probation. He's also required to register as a sex offender and successfully complete sex offender treatment.

The Yuma Sun reports that Warren recently pleaded guilty under a plea agreement to one count of criminal trespass with a sexual motivation.

Judge David Haws told Warren during the sentencing that he clearly needs help and could face a "very tragic end" if he doesn't change what the judge said was "incredibly poor judgment."
